We stopped in after a tour of the town to have a look at this elegant "Grande Dame" with awesome views over the bay. Although we were not guests the staff was very friendly and after looking at the menus, we decided to book dinner later in the week for our last night in Sicily / our friend's birthday. Yes... More

This hotel is one of the most opulent yet manages to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The views are breath-taking, Etna changes every day! We were lucky to be given an upgrade and the room was very spacious, good air-con and spotlessly clean. Yet, it is the staff members who make this hotel so wonderful. Our holiday was perfect due...

This hotel was a true gem in a trip that abounded in them. Location, just below the ancient Greek theater, and with fantastic views to the south toward Mt. Etna, and yet within steps of the quaint town, can't be beat. Hotel staff were wonderful, with the concierge Stephane a special standout. The breakfast buffet was delectable, and the view... More

What can I say about this amazing hotel, from the level of service to the incredible views - the Grand Hotel Timeo simply blew me away! After being picked up by our driver, we were transported through the tight streets of Taormina to this beautiful hidden gem. After a wonderful greeting by the Belmond staff, the head concierge Stephen personally... More

Our stay there started with a warmest welcome by Steven. The hotel is gorgeous, situated across from Mt Etna and dominating the Taormina bay. The view is spectacular from the terrace. We stayed at their adjacent villa and the same view from our room. It is pricey but well worth it! A spectacular buffet breakfast is served on the terrace.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a splendid two nights at the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo. We did not know what to expect of Taormina, but were bowled over by its charm as soon as we hit the cobblestone streets leading to the Timeo. Upon arrival at the parking lot, we were whisked up by golf cart to the hotel. Our... More

This hotel is not only the best hotel in Taormina, but in all of Sicily, and possibly in all of Italy!! The staff are very helpful, and go above and beyond to go out of their way for you.

Forgive me for this late appraisal, but I thought I must still write briefly about such a lovely stay last year. Firstly, I take my hat off to all the restaurant staff, who were superb.
